About The Position

The Engineering group at Zooz brings together Software design, Hardware and Infrastructure Management/Design and Operations and Engineering (devops). You’ll be a part of rapidly growing team working across the technical organisation comprised of other Engineers, Designers and Product Managers.

As a team, we challenge and mentor each other to do the best work of your career. You’ll have the opportunity to have a truly global impact on merchant’s commerce platforms, from a developer adding payments to the next big app to global e-commerce platforms.

As an Ops Engineer you will be tasked with focussing on developing our observability systems including log management and event/information processing, instrumenting our containerised applications and management of our systems and services. Day to day you will be working very closely with engineering teams to ensure managing and debugging distributed systems feel effortless and easy through innovative and simple tooling solutions, eloquent dashboards and insight that talented ops engineers should bring. All of this in the name of enabling our developers and wider technology group with the visibility of our mission-critical transaction processing system; never missing a beat. Ideally you’ll be extremely passionate about making sure no one loses sleep whilst the global online marketplace carries on running 24/7 (but we pretty much all like coffee).with focussing on developing our observability systems including log management and event/information processing, instrumenting our containerised applications and management of our systems and services.
